Washington: Mobs of US President Donald Trump's supporters stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday, forcing Congress to suspend a session to certify President-elect Joe Biden's victory. Police deployed tear gas inside the Capitol to disperse the rioters, who used chemical irritants to attack police. One woman died after being shot during the clashes, police said.

Twitter has locked US President Donald Trump's account for 12 hours for "repeated and severe violations" of its Civic Integrity Policy and asked him to delete three tweets that were posted on Wednesday. If he doesn't delete them, his account will remain suspended indefinitely, it said. Facebook has blocked Trump's page from posting for 24 hours due to policy violations

Addressing his supporters protesting the outcome of the US Presidential election in Washington, DC, President Donald Trump said, "We will never give up. We will never concede." "You don't concede when there's theft involved," Trump added, repeating his allegation of fraud in the election. The rally came as US Congress met to certify President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the election.
